CORNWALL FLOORCARE - Travertine Floor Cleaning

Travertine Floor Cleaning


Travertine is part of the limestone family and is very popular flooring in Cornwall and the South West. It is formed in hot springs called Karst and is generally tan or beige in colour but can have reds and silver running through it. The characteristic holes you see in the stone are formed by water movement. The holes are often filled by coloured Portland cement or coloured resins. Travertine comes in a three types of finish polished, tumbled or honed. Polished travertine can look blotchy where the fillers used do not take to the polish. Travertine needs regular maintenance involving sealing or impregnating as the the stone is extremely acid sensitive.

Once we have completed the polishing we then seal the floor to protect it from water and oil based spills to keep your floor looking great and protecting your investment.

Strip and re-seal

If your travertine floor is in need of some TLC due to soil build up in the stone and grout it will require a strip and re-seal. In this restoration process we strip off old seals and deep clean the floor using our specialist machines we then seal the floor to protect it from any stains. This process will restore your floor back to its former glory.
